PA Voter ID Law
This page is your guide to the Pennsylvania Voter ID Law. Information provided by the Committee of Seventy and the Pennsylvania Voter ID Coalition.
The Voter ID law will not be in effect for the May 21 primary. Poll workers may ask you to for photo ID, but you are not required to show it in order to vote. Individuals voting for the first time or voting at a new polling place must show either photo or non-photo ID.
Voter id exit poll survey
On November 6 the Committee of Seventy and the PA Voter ID Coalition conducted a short survey to get a sense of whether voters would have been prepared to comply with the Pennsylvania Voter ID law and if polling place workers carried out the "soft roll-out" of the law. Read our report to see the results of the survey. Additional materials found in Appendix A, Appendix B, Appendix C.
